Let The Right One In

I'm sure my readers will appreciate that I rarely give a movie more than 3 stars, and this is only the 4th time in my blogging career that I have given 5 stars, so I'm sure that you wil understand that this movie must be some great revolution in the history of movie making... in fact, I would venture to say it is very nearly the "perfect" movie...
It was with great aticipation that I went to view this movie, after reading that nearly every reputable movie magazine gave it a 5 star rating... I knew for certain that I was in for something amazing!
I had to travel a little way as my home cinema wasn't showing it, but it was well worth it, and I would recommend it to all of my readers, even if you aren't a fan of the Vampire genre!


Oskar, a bullied 12-year old, dreams of revenge. He falls in love with Eli, a peculiar girl. She can't stand the sun or food and to come into a room she needs to be invited. Eli gives Oskar the strength to hit back but when he realizes that Eli needs to drink other people's blood to live he's faced with a choice. How much can love forgive? Let The Right One In is a story both violent and highly romantic, set in the Stockholm suburb of Blackeberg in 1982.
Written by John Nordling, Producer

Starring: Kåre Hedebrant, and Lina Leandersson Directed by: Tomas Alfredson

Fantasy Take

Excellent fantasy movie, yet not too weird as to alienate the avereage viewer...

Storyline: 5 Stars

Brilliant story, based in a perfect fairy-tale style, simple and easy to follow, yet leaving you as if you had had the most filling meal in your life!

Graphics: 4 Stars

Hey, it's not really that kind of movie, but for what it is, the graphics certainly do what's needed of them...

Acting: 5 Stars

O just perfect actors! Especially the little girl (Eli), who was both sweet, but still quite freaky at times!

Music: 4 Stars

Excellent music, though I would have liked a catchy theme tune to hum on my way home...

Emotions: 5 Stars

Excellently emotional throughout, I was completely wrapped!


Well, in conclusion... It's basically perfect... need I say more?
